          Six $100 savings bonds will be awarded, donated by NEW Customer Service Companies, Inc.
"We encourage youth to learn financial skills. Along with the other participating institutions, we want
young members to know the budgeting skills they learn now will benefit them for a lifetime," says Eglin
Federal Credit Union President Phipps McGee.
          This is a great opportunity for youth to open a savings account or add to an existing one AND
have a chance to win a $100 savings bond. It also gives adults, especially parents and teachers, the
opportunity to begin a discussion about money and savings.
